I'm someone who loves to work and loves to travel, so helping other people plan their own adventures around the world is the perfect combination of my interests and expertise. I studied Sustainable Development, Landscape Ecology & Nature Guiding, so travel that involves wildlife is right up my street. Favourites have to be the elephants of Botswana and the lemurs of Madagascar, but I'm increasingly becoming an avid birder - Sao Tome is an amazing place for birds, they're so colourful! Working in international development saw me enjoying living in an isolated mountain home in Tanzania, yet having grown up with the glittery city life of Dubai & the Middle East, I'm a stickler for detail and 5* service. All of this means I can relate to your style of travel, whether it’s polished luxury on a fine white sand beach, or backpacking through Malawi’s Highlands. Both of which I highly recommend.
My Expertise - I can help with a large number of destinations, but countries I particularly love are Botswana, Malawi, Zambia & the Middle East (Dubai & Abu Dhabi are most visited).
REVIEWS OF HOLIDAYS I’VE CREATED
“Everybody likes to say nice things, but these guys really were the real deal. Rebecca is, by title, an African Specialist - and she was just that! She planned our trip based on our requirements BUT exceeded them in every way”
- Steve, Zambia Safari
“My first point of contact was with Rebecca who is incredibly knowledgeable about safaris. I was very nervous to begin with, but we talked it through (for a long time!) and we eventually had one of our best ever family holidays to Kenya then what was for us a return journey to Mauritius. I would thoroughly recommend Far and Wild with no hesitation.”
- Kathy, Kenya Safari
“Amazing!!! Very affordable package we had & the itinerary was fantastic”
- Mikhail, South Africa Walking Safari
MY TOP TRAVEL MOMENTS
White water rafting along the Colorado River and sleeping out for 11 days down in the Grand Canyon.
Jogging through pineapple fields between classes on my yoga retreat in central Thailand.
I'm lucky enough to have lived and worked in Tanzania and Botswana, but have also travelled extensively in Southern & Eastern Africa in recent years to explore the National Parks and their wonderful properties. In October/November 2018 I travelled with African Bush Camps & Vayeni throughout Zimbabwe, Southern Zambia & Botswana. In October I also checked out some of the top hotels in the UAE, in Dubai & Abu Dhabi, as well as enjoying everywhere from the beaches and islands, to the city and desert. In June 2018 I travelled through central Zambia & Malawi's highlands with Robin Pope Safaris and took my boyfriend to Majete, Liwonde & Lake Malawi on his first safari. He loved it! In November 2017 I travelled to Kenya's Lake Naivasha & Elementeita area, the spectacular Masai Mara, Nairobi and Watamu on the coast with Atua Enkop Safaris.
I LOVE STAYING AT...
Pumulani - Lake Malawi - relaxation & community spirit in hillside suites big enough to call apartments!
Zambezi Expeditions - Mana Pools, Zimbabwe - a peaceful sense of adventure & place to see Carmine Bee Eaters.
Al Maha - Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, UAE - wildlife, watercolours & easels, and private pools in the sand, the perfect balance of style, history & conservation.
